Volunteer Opportunities

We are still in need of some boats to use as safety boats.  Anyone who would like to volunteer themselves and their boat for Saturday 12 October 2019  (Thanksgiving weekend) would be much appreciated.  Any kind of boat that can seat 3 or 4 people is fine. 

Regular volunteers on the ground are needed too.  Volunteers will get a free breakfast and lunch provided by the Lion’s Club.    Students who volunteer will have the time put towards their school credits.  Anyone interested should contact Pat Schofield at   dpschofieldstream@cogeco.ca  or 705-646-9814.

KIDS REGATTA

The Brandy Lake Association held it’s third annual Regatta on Saturday August 17th, 2019 at Rockslea Cottage in Launch Bay.

Thirty participants spent the afternoon on the water, cheered on by parents, grandparents, cousins and neighbours as they competed in six events to try to bring home the coveted Brandy Cup!

Congratulations to this year’s winners, the Nicholson-Fisher family combination all the way from the east end of Sunset Bay, who wrest away the trophy from the defending champion Innes family from Launch Bay!

The most heated competition took place in the family canoe race where the two time defending canoe race champions, the Stevens family from Launch Bay, were forced to relinquish their title to the Billington family from the Narrows.

A shout of thanks and much gratitude to the numerous volunteers who supervised and assisted in the water and on land as well as allowing the kind use of their paddle boards and canoes.

The great supports of the Brandy Lake Community and the BLA makes this possible.
